The Global Seed Vault

Svalbard is famous also for the Svalbard Global Seed Vault, a seed deposit, provides a safety net against accidental botanical loss of the traditional genetic heritage of seeds. The structure is made of concrete in order to resist a possible nuclear war or a plane crash. It is composed by three rooms 27 metres long, 10 metres wide and 6 metres high, closed by thick steel doors.

The Norwegian government has funded the centre through the Global Crop Diversity Trust, which played a key role in the planning of the storage and coordinating seed sample shipments, in collaboration with the Nordic Genetic Resource Center.
